It is good, but there are newer ones available from Linksys.

K. Rush, Amazon

  • Summary: Mine came with firmware that did not work correctly. I got on the line with Linksys System support and they found that my firmware was back level. They said they would update it for $100. Since that was $30 more than I paid for the router, I said no thank you.

a pain in the arse the setting for mac

Leos "leos", Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Well, for mac users it is a headache -it doesn't mean you can't do it- because you need different sources and reading to set this thing up; however you can learn stuff. After that it works perfectly. I have had for some months and it hasn't failed at all.

Good Home Router

  • Summary: CISCO does networking better than any one else. This is a very simple to use and reliable router. It's range isn't as great as others, but for the price, it is well worth it.

It DOES work with Vonage and it is fast, you just need to disable multimedia preference on QOS

Santos Dumont "14-Bis", Amazon

  • Summary: Update the firmware to the latest level, reset it to factory defaults, customize it to your own network, and DISABLE the multimedia flag in the QOS tab. Done! Great speeds and a great connection...

great range, setup a little slow

David Osborn, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this router today in combination with a Zoom 5341J cable modem after returning a Zoom 5350 wireless gateway (see my review on it). After getting the Zoom 5341J cable modem going with a wired internet connection (which was very easy), I switched to the router.

E1500 after a month

gs, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought this because one side of the house was not well covered by my other wireless set up. Really didnt want to pay a fortune for something that was only a fix and who knows how long routers will last. Bought this because it seemed to be the best value.

Works after some tweaks

R. Demers, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: After following on screen instructions from the included CD, download speeds were severely limited. Found through google searches that you must disable WMM Support in the Applications & Gaming - QOS screen. Also to get the full 300mbps link, I had to set Channel Width to Auto (20 or 40Mhz).

Pretty Good!

Nick F., Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: Small, lightweight, easy to set up! Downloaded the latest firmware from the Linksys website rather than using the disc it came with (was probably faster that way too) and had the router up and running in minutes! Really liked this because I know NOTHING about setting up networks.
